Back in the store

The store is almost in order. Jane unpacked the boxes yesterday and Kim and I finished getting the yarn into it's place today.

I have set up a blog for Knitting Camp and will be posting more pictures there. We should have information in the next week or so about Camp 2013 as well.

Mr. Canada Post brought in three exciting boxes today from madelinetosh. There were two colours of dk-opaline and cathedral along with pashmina worsted in
-mourning dove
-well water
-composition book grey
-worn denim
-wicked (which is wicked and I am going to take some home with me :) )
Pashmina Worsted is a 4-ply yarn made up of 75% merino wool, 15% silk and 10% cashmere. This yarn is a heavier weight version of our very popular Pashmina base. A similar fiber blend to the infamous woven pashmina scarves. This machine washable blend is hand-dyed in small dye lots and knits up to create a soft fabric with great drape.
We did a bit of moving to find a spot for the pashmina worsted.
For the past week the walls in the store were bare. Garments went to Camp but they are hanging again. We have some on loan from suppliers for the next week including:
The Lush Cowl from Prism. 2 skeins of Prism Plume and 2 skeins of Prism Stuff.

A new yarn (100% NZ Merino) from Naturally called Drift. I should have taken a picture before the shadows came out this afternoon. The jacket is short sleeved with pockets. Julie modelled it at Camp and it is amazing!

The Kaw Valley Wrap from Blue Sky Alpacas. This is my sample and you have seen it before but I thought it looked so good hanging that I wanted to share a picture. Our sample is knit in Alpaca Silk but you can also knit it in Metalico.
Luxury as nature intended, Metalico utilizes naturally occurring shades of baby alpaca blended with mulberry silk, and creates an undyed shimmering palette from gleaming whites to silvery grays and flecked golds. 
I think that Beth and I are caught up on the TV we missed last week. It is amazing how many people go on Survivor saying that they are going to sit back and not take a roll as the leader and then become the pushy one that no one likes. The finale of Big Brother was interesting. I'm glad that Ian won.

I need to hit Publish and then do some investigating on Ravelry. What am I going to make in the pashmina worsted??
